John Peter TROUP
Anna Maria HOFFMAN
NOTICE:  a patrilineal descendant of our subject is participating in the STRAUB Y-chromosome DNA Surname Project.  Anyone who suspects they descend from our subject on a direct male line can now support that connection with a DNA test.  Our subject's descendant is a high-level DNA match with a descendant of Jonathan Francis STRAUB/STROUP (1821-1901) of Chapman Twp., Union [now Snyder] Co., PA, confirming the long-standing suspicion that conversions between STRAUB/STROUP and TRAUB/TROUP have occurred.
Husband:  John Peter TRAUB / TROUP
Birth:  1757, York Co., PA
Death:  bef. 4 Oct 1823, Perry Twp., Union [now Snyder] Co., PA
Y-DNA Haplogroup:  I1a-Norse-D

It's highly probable our subject is descended from (or at least related to) this couple:
Father:  Johann Paul TRAUB (c1725-c1787), of Gimbsheim, Rhineland-Palatinate, and York Co., PA
Mother:  Mary DIERDORFF
but the connection is not proven.  If you are a direct male line descendant of Johann Paul, please join the DNA project and be tested!

Wife:  Anna Maria HOFFMAN
Birth:  ca. 1759, Monaghan Twp., York Co., PA [now Latimore Twp., Adams Co., PA]
Death:  aft. 4 Oct 1823, Union [now Snyder] Co., PA
Father:  Christopher "Stoffel" HOFFMAN (1727-1797)
Mother:  Anna Elizabeth GRAVES
Children born in Mohantango Twp., Northumberland Co., PA [now Perry Twp., Snyder Co., PA]:
1.  John TROUP, b. 12 Jan 1778; m. by 1810, Anna Maria SHAFFER 
2.  Peter TROUP, b. 7 Oct 1784; m. by 1810, Catharine SHAFFER 
3.  (Son A) TROUP, b. by 1790; appears to have died by 1800
4.  (Son B) TROUP, b. by 1790; appears to have died by 1800
5.  (Daughter A) TROUP, b. by 1790; living in 1800, so may have survived to marry
6.  Christiana TROUP, b. 15 May 1792; m. by 1810, J. Jacob SHAFFER

Without knowing the birthdates of the three unidentified children, it's impossible to place them accurately in the order of births, but we know Christiana is the youngest, and given our subject's birthyear, there can be no doubt that John is the eldest.
